Tardeviot 1788 Sasines no. 1866 [‘Corstown (Corston SLO) and Milns and pendicles called Tardeviot’]
Torfdirst 1828 SGF
Until other early forms of this name are identified, there is little point in offering even the most tentative etymology.
It appears on SGF (1828) as a settlement consisting of two buildings on the north bank of the River Eden and to the west of Corston Mill, of which it is described in 1788 as a pendicle or dependent piece of land.
